Pilots Finish 2014 Season 20-24
July 28th, 2014
Well fellow Pilots fans the boys in Glacier blue didn't quite make it to the series, but what another great summer of Alaskan baseball!
Congrats to the Alaska Goldpanners (33-9) and the Mat-Su Miners (26-14) as they begin their 3 games battle in the Top of the World series tonight at Mulcahy Stadium at 6pm AST (7pmPST)!!!
This season the league has two separate divisions (American & National) with the Pilots in the National Division. This is a good move for the league overall making the Top of The World series more interesting and competitive. But I wonder if the ABL could have named the two leagues something more Alaskan instead of the now generic terms "American and National."
Any thoughts on the subject?

The Sensational Story of the
2001 ANCHORAGE GLACIER PILOTS NBC & ABL Championships Team
Trailer for the incredible untold story of the 2001 National Baseball Congress and Alaska League Champions: The Anchorage Glacier Pilots!
This team has produced so many future Major League baseball players. The 2001 Team alone included Jeff Francis (Colorado Rockies), Ben Francisco (World Series Philadelphia Phillies 2008) and Mark Teahen (Kansas City Royals).
The focus of the documentary film, with a June 2015* release date, is the 2001 Team. Their story is so BIG - everything in Alaska is BIG! - that it will initially be featured in an ongoing 9-part (or more) web series premiering in the summer of 2014*.
